Sarah Rasmussen, 38, of Clarkston, Wash., was charged with a felony count of trafficking meth, and five other suspects were arrested for frequenting a place where illegal substances are used. One was from Lewiston: 37-year-old Lisa Bond; and the other four were from Clarkston: 41-year-old Chris Tannhaill, 35-year-old Tommie Davis, 35-year-old Rodney Olson and 48-year-old Guy Bumpus.
